Those grow wild in the mountains in New Mexico and here are called Shasta Daisy. I enjoyed your photos as these flowers have about finished blooming here. I've planted thousands of seed, hoping to have a personal field of them with a yield of about 1%.

We have shasta daisies here in NJ, also, but I have never managed the pretty photos like you, Torgny.

Thanks. I read that in some places some of them can bloom in various times of the year. Good luch with your Shasta Daisy seeds

Thanks for viewing and commenting. Is it true that there is an expression, "pushing up the daisies"

Yes, Torgy, "Pushing up the daisies" is an euphemism for dead and buried (in a nice field, I suppose.)

JDar,

Well, that´s some meaningful task (smile).

Must be far better than having to deal with too much heat or accessing 100% happiness 100 % of the time.

Cool

(Measuring in Celcius or Fahrenheit doesn´t matter - (smile))

Thank you. Yes, they are sharp enough to make blow ups. The second is quite interesting from that respect

Already in this size, if you use your eyes in a similar manner that you would when you approach a 3D picture, you can see some really interesting patterns in the center of the main flower

Nature is economizing. It has nothing to do with that stupid concept, "intelligent design", from over the ocean

I wish you a nice sunday, hercules


Torgny
